The excitement grows as the Siobhán Cotter tournament nears. The numbers at U6 are growing week-by-week so anyone new that wishes to join, please come along and make it known.
Our U8/U10 panels hosted Keel on Sunday morning. It was pretty breezy but at least the rain stayed away. Despite the conditions all players put in great performances and everything seems to be on track for the end of year tournament.
Thanks to Keel for making the trip and we intend to reciprocate the gesture in 2 weeks time with a return trip to Keel.
The U10s will continue to train on Wednesday at the slightly earlier time of 6:45PM in the Spa.
All academy ages of U6/U8/U10 will train next Sunday at 11AM in the Spa. The recent U14 Central League squad will be present to show off their trophy and for pictures.


Having already captured the county League title, our U12s played their last round of fixtures in the central league away to Ballyheigue on Sunday night. Unfortunately, our A panel lost on a score of 4-09 to 1-08 but our B-panel put in an impressive display to win by 0-05 to 4-12. Both panels should be extremely proud of their achievements this year.


Our U13 took part in the Austin Stacks Lee Strand Invitational tournament on Saturday. They were drawn in a strong group playing John Mitchel’s, Salthill and Clontarf. Churchill had a few players unavailable but still managed to hold their own in all the games losing by only a few scores. It was a great experience for the lads playing at that level and congratulations to Austin Stacks on a well organized tournament.


After their success in the Central League our U14 panel are awaiting a fixture to play the Brendan’s League Final.


The date of the final of the U16 Central League has yet to be finalized and the next round of the Tralee District League will be the 22nd September away to Austin stacks at 6:30PM.

Training is continuing as normal as communicated by the mentors.

Senior B

Churchill’s second team had a great victory in their tough quarter final away to St Senans on Friday evening. This fixture has always been a very physical affair and last Friday was no exception with both teams giving it their all. Playing into the breeze in the first half Churchill settled well with Jack O’Connell dominating in midfield and Tommy McCarthy providing the outlet in the full forward line. At half time Churchill led by 4 points to 2. Every ball was battled for in the second half with neither team willing to concede easy possession. The break through came mid way through the half when a high ball into the square was met by Derek Nolan, who rose like a salmon to fist the ball past the out rushing keeper. Liam Harty was like a man transported 20 years back in time covering every blade of grass up until the final whistle. Churchill will now face Skellig Rangers in the semi final.
